Mama, Do You Love Me?

"Mama, do you love me?" asks the little girl in this book. Fortunately, Mama is quick to reassure: "I love you more than the raven loves his treasure, than the dog loves his tail, than the whale loves his spout..." And even when the girl tests that declaration -- "What if I put salmon in your parka...and ermine in your mukluks?" -- Mama stands firm: she will always love her little girl. This beloved story of a child testing the limits of her independence, and a mother who reassuringly proves that a parents love is unconditional and everlasting, is a perfect first book for toddlers.

This story is available in a traditional picture book, which includes a glossary of terms and is suitable for age 3 - 6, and in an abridged board book format for age 2 - 3.

Description Review

This exceptional board-book tells a beautiful and timeless story about a daughter's attempt to find the limit of her mother's love. Barbara Lavallee's exquisite illustrations of Alaska, with their exaggeratedly foreshortened perspective and rich tones of violet, blue-gray, and gray-green, tell of an easy declaration... that is pushed, and pushed.There's a quiet joyfulness in both the antics of the Inuit mother and daughter and in the animals -- including a polar bear and a musk ox -- that the daughter imagines she might become. A charming story for mothers and daughters of all ages." --Richard Farr
